Abstract

During the last decade, increased attention has been devoted to consider efficacy of mass-reared insects for SIT programs in relation to their quality attributes (biometrics). The significance of this approach refers to both the rationale of the technology (Leppla and Ashley, 1989) and/or to program economics (Calkins and Ashley, 1989).
